The Salina Salvation Army is planning a Thanksgiving dinner for several thousand of their closest friends. The organization will again host a free community-wide Thanksgiving dinner.

The event this year will be at Applebee’s on South 9th Street in Salina. The meal will include turkey with all the trimmings.

Roxanne Matous from the Salvation Army tells KSAL News that the event wouldn’t be possible without a lot of volunteer help. She says that staff at Applebee’s, the Salina Country Club, and the GL Huyett company of Minneapolis all provide help.

Matous says that they will prepare 60 turkeys for the event. It is free, and open to anyone in the community.

The Salvation Army free Thanksgiving dinner at Applebee’s in Salina will be from noon until 2:00 on Thanksgiving Day.

Turkey and all the trimmings, along with good fellowship are the only things on the menu.

It amazes me the coverage the Salvation Army gets for this like it is entirely their people and monies that are going to this. They receive a large part of the money for this dinner from donations. It is time to call this what it is because if it were not for others besides the Sal Army there would be no program to feed people that can afford to eat at home or elsewhere and pay for it themselves. I have no problem feeding those that truly need the help I rather encourage it but take a ride by the parking lot and look at all the new high dollar cars and trucks parked there taking advantage of something that should be for the needy only.

Please call me father or dad and don’t use your mother’s name in vain. You I believe will be first in line to get the free meal which is good since you do not have two nickles to rub together. Have a good dinner then get back to ringing the bell.

I will be helping as a volunteer as a matter of fact instead of criticizing something of such importance like Bozo’s like you do. You’re not worthy of being called a “father” or “dad” Bozo. POS fits you to a key you whiner….LOL!
